Equal Accessibility to All Readers, Regardless Of Disabilities

Web Accessible eBook Development

Backed by 15+ years of experience, state-of-the-art infrastructure and an expert team, SunTec Digital offers all-out support to authors and publishers in producing web accessible eBooks for one and all. We help right from creating eBooks in compliance with W3C's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and Section 508 through to testing and QA, ensuring that the content can be easily accessed by people with special needs.

Towards Accessible Content for All Users

Expert ePublishing teams at SunTec Digital use technologies like HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript to build ePub3 publications, while focusing on accessibility features like navigation, font size, markup & headings, etc. To improve reading experiences of people with visual impairments, dyslexia, or motor disabilities, we produce accessible eBooks, in conformation with Accessible Publishing Best Practice Guidelines, including:

  • Structurally-tagged content
  • Text to speech capability
  • Detailed navigable table of contents
  • Alternative text descriptions to explain illustrations, images, diagrams, etc., for readers
  • Font size, style and color
  • Alternative background colors
  • Controllable line spacing
  • Ensuring that any DRM that may be applied to a particular title does not inhibit the accessibility of that title.

We work together with our clients to understand their exacting requirements as well as the target audience to build web accessible eBooks, tactile graphics, audio books, as well as accessible apps & websites – utilizing assistive technology. Our teams follow XML-first workflow, one of the best ways to create digital content. It includes building in all the “accessibility features” at the beginning of the workflow, before creating the product.

We deliver you web accessible eBooks developed in compliance with WCAG 2.0 guidelines and make sure that the following elements are included:

  • Metadata
  • Hierarchy of named headings, parts, chapters, sections and subsections
  • Section breaks
  • Images and their alt text
  • Footnotes and references, wherever required
  • Running heads and page numbers
  • Color contrast
  • Audio and video clips
  • Correct structure for link text
  • Media overlays, pronunciation style sheets and MathML
  • Proper tagging of links, lists and tables to ensure proper reading of content for screen reader users

We also conduct technical audit of your product that include assessing the digital files in terms of text access, image access, access to special types of data and supported screen readers, and conduct web accessibility user testing of functionalities and experience together with mobile application testing and audits, focused on the needs of assistive technology users.
